The game is not only full of grinds, but grinds that are exclusionary.

I like this game, but I am seriously terrible at it.  Which is odd, as I never really had much trouble with the AC games.  It's a little frustrating that anytime you get spotted, you're immediately surrounded by a dozen enemies.  I haven't been able to get the hang of combat yet, and I'm afraid I'm going to break the game with the number of Orcs that are getting promoted because they killed me. 

Did you not play the Batman games? The combat is practically the exact same as those.
Early on don't be afraid to run.  Later with some upgrades you can stand in a crowd of 30+ orcs and easily wipe the floor with them.

In combat you want to build your combo so you can use your execution moves, don't just stand around trying to parry like in AC.

When games are CPU bound it usually doesn't impact resolution, that's why the framerate still sucks when you keep dropping the res on some PC titles.

Who cares about the resolution? You can't even tell the difference between 900 and 1080. When the PS4 version of Black Flag got patched with the higher resolution I could not discern the increase, and I'm a certified graphics whore. It's the framerate that bums me out as I was hoping for 60fps.

A comment from someone on the Ubi team has made me worried about these consoles, he basically said that AI is processed by the CPU and that the PS4/Xbox are not powerful enough to handle the game above 30FPS (steadily) because of it. Granted, AC games tend to have more AI characters on screen at once than most games, but it's still disheartening. I'm hoping the limitation is overcome as time goes on or at least only applies to open-world games of this magnitude.

I absolutely could tell the difference pre/post patch.

The actual resolutions aren't the real story though, it's a developer saying they are intentionally not taking full advantage of hardware to keep both versions at parity.  That's nonsense.  Can you imagine if the PC version was limited to 900P/30FPS to exactly match the console versions?  Do you think THAT would go over well, with a "you can't tell the difference" ?

As I said on another forum, I can't believe they said that.

What  dumb statement, just release them both at 900p and not comment on it, but to come out and say it's the same to avoid debates, well hey, have debates.

What's the difference between interrogating a regular orc and a 'worm'.  Is it just that 'worms' can give weaknesses?

Also, all the weaknesses seem pretty vague so far.

But I've restarted about 5 times so I'm still not very far.  Just got done with the 'interested party' mission.

Intel gives strength and weaknesses.  I'm not sure what's vague about "immune to stealth attacks" or "can be instantly killed by a charged arrow headshot."

The combat in this game is so good it's ridiculous.  I'm about half way through main missions and I've done a ton of side content so I'm at the bottom tier of the P ability tree.  I am flying around huge groups, cutting off heads, shadow striking, turning allies, all in one group.  They nailed it with the combat in this game.  AC just got owned.

Middle Earth AC with the Batman combat engine is pretty much a spot on description of the game.

Rash the Poet will be missed.  He was not a very good poet, but he tried, and that won him a place in my heart. Even though he had to get a blade run through his own heart.

He might be back, lord knows Horza the Assassin won't stay dead, think I've pulled up 5 runes from him now.  He's as undying as the player character.

I had a great run with the game yesterday.  Right after I started, I ran into a gang of captains and took out two of them.  The combat is very smooth and I love the little changes they made like the instant executions and saving moves when you get knocked down.  Like others have said, the game does a great job of balancing a bad-ass with vulnerability.

Instant Takedowns were in the Batman games.  The combat is pretty much straight from them, right down to what the buttons do, square/X attacks, triangle/y counters, circle/B stuns, x/A vault/rolls, left trigger throws batterang/dagger.   Even the hit streak having to hit  8x to enable the instant finisher is the same. 

Those saving moves are new though I think and pretty cool.

Hearing some bad things about the xbone version image quality .

Could you be more specific?

Some site was reporting the XB1 version was 720p/30FPS compared to the PS4 being 1080P/60FPS.   I'll be kind of surprised if that's true though as that kind of performance gap seems too large from what we've seen of the graphics of the game.  Typically we've only been seeing a difference in FPS or resolution, usually not both to such a large degree as the numbers above.

Digital Foundry should have a detailed analysis out post release I'm sure.

You use it to buy legendary gear from The Speaker.

Calling what the speaker sells legendary gear is a bit of a stretch.  It's more legendary aesthetic items.   Xur on the other hand will sell you a legendary engram for motes of light.

I will admit I'm losing some of my passion for playing especially since my gearing has plateaued at 25.

Are you not interested in levelling up the other two classes?  I'm a few levels below you and still happy with my progression rate, but if I stall out enough to get grumpy with my Hunter I'm really looking forward to seeing how Titan and Warlock play.  As much as Bladedancer really clicks with me, it's hard to not also be jealous of some of the feats I see the other classes pull off in PvP.

Honestly, I'm only logging in to play with you guys, but not seeing positive movement for my Warlock just irks me.   Anyway, I like the game just wish loot dropped more frequently like D3

Are you on the PS4 and if so what's your name on there? I'm at the same spot as you, I would love to do the Queen missions but they are too hard solo, and the game doesn't auto group it for you. Which means it's next to impossible to pug the mission since Destiny's chat and group finding is non existent.

I mostly play from 5:30 am until 7 am and then again from 9:00 pm until 12 eastern time.

I can help you out Scraper, I'm on PS4 and can usually handle them solo.  Think I'm at level 27 roughly now.

Questions:

I'm now level 20. 

How do I join one of the crucible guilds? Visited one yesterday and there was no prompt

Where are the daily missions found?

In the crucible, when melee is fully charged is it a one hit kill?  (I'm a warlock)  I seem to go down alot even with fully charged shields from melee hits.

What does energy drain do practically in the MP?


I know this game is pretty divisive, but I'm really loving it.  Might get back to the story at some point too slywink>

You earn faction rep by purchasing their class vanity item and wearing that.  As long as you have that equipped all rep you earn goes to that faction, this includes Vanguard and Crucible rep so you want to ensure that you only equip it for the crucible as the faction vendors only take crucible marks.  

Daily missions are on the left of the screen when you go to select destination, these are different from bounties which you get from the bounty board in the tower.

Glycerine,  check out Sports Friends (which is free with plus I think right now) and Tower Fall.  They are both retro couch games to be played 2-4 players.

here's a tip not sure if it was mention but before turning in bounties equip any gear you want to level.  Don't give XP to gear that is fully leveled that your don't plan on keeping

I also ran a few crucible matches and finally managed a decent game.  I may be officially too old for this shit.  MP doesn't seem particularly suitable for the Scout/Sniper rifle build I favor as the range of most fights is handgun/shotgun range. 

Depends on the map.  I had to grab 4 more melee kills for a Crucible bounty, no problem do that quick in a Clash match right?  So it's the Moon map, barely managed to get 2 of the 4, it was all snipers and vehicles.

Anyone have a dummies guide to all the daily/weekly game chores I should be doing? 

  • I should be getting 100 marks every week before the cap resets on Tuesday
  • I should be doing a "daily heroic?"  What's that, the strike mission?
  • There's also a "weekly heroic?"
  • Raids are different than the strike missions, and not yet in the game?  Are they going to have time limits?
  • Other stuff?

Try to clear all your daily bounties.  Consider them like dailies in WoW
Daily Heroic is a story mission pushed up to level 20+.  Can be done solo or with a fireteam.   I suggest finding a FT.   
Daily Strike Mission  is for a fireteam.  If you click it you will be placed in a group
Daily Crucible is just a rotating PvP game type
There is a Weekly Strike that gives 3 strange coins (vendor only appears on Friday and Saturday.  He was gone on Sunday)
Vault of Glass just unlocked today and is a Raid.  Light level 26 minimum

Seriously, just jump into party chat with us and we'll set you straight and you will normally find a group do some runs of to help you with a run

I'm pretty sure the Daily/Weekly Strike will not put you in a group.  I'll need to double check, but I believe that was one of the instances where matchmaking is disabled.

Is everyone on the FT able to loot the same chest during a strike mission?

More and more I feel the comparison to launch Diablo 3 is apt.  There's a really solid foundation here, but there's a lot of weird quirks and things that could be improved.  I hope they are able to fine tune it like Blizzard did over time with D3.

When you beat the game you can select 20+.  You can't alter patrol difficulty or strike difficulty.   Strikes are weird because there are level 20+ versions of all the strikes that are in the strike playlist.  Makes some of the strike bounties annoying to take as it's either do the low level one or hope you get it in random.

Wait - so I can redo all my story missions at lvl 20, where the monsters are lvl 20 as well? I DID NOT KNOW THIS! I am lvl 20 and just signed up for the strike missions last night.

My turn to share a tidbit - If you unlock a subclass at level 15, every character, whether created or not, will have their subclass unlocked from the start.
Oh that is good to know.  Making a blade dancer hunter will certainly be less tedious.

Is faction rep carried over between characters?  God I hope so.
